    Leading the child away in handcuffs was over the top.

    I have no problem with the administration calling the cops, and I'd hope my school district would do the same. But apparently rational thought and response goes out the window when stupid cops lead probably the smartest kid away at that school in handcuffs because they wouldn't believe him when he said it's just a clock (and actually seemed to use that against him). FYI, he's suspended 3 days.

    But god forbid someone be critical of some stupid cops doing something stupid or the anti-PC warriors will bleat about how society is ruined. RUINED!

    You wanna know how you turn smart young muslims into terrorists? Being a f-in moron and arresting them when they actually do something smart. We're f-ed, and it has nothing to do with idiots being outraged (oh the irony) about PC culture gone mad.

    Nope. Outrage and PC is as dumb as it gets these days.

    No. Outrage about the outrage is one click down on the dumb scale.

    Hex,

    You haven't been paying attention ****!!! 2015 is the year of outrage and political correctness.

    A circuit board with wires stuffed in a case at a time when school attacks are more prevalent now than ever...in today's PC world, it is not surprising in the least.

    Zero tolerance (demanded by the public at large) is now a balancing act between safety and freedom. True story. Might as well get used to it.

    You know what else has circuit boards? A computer. If this kid was not Muslim, they would have taken him at his word or at least the teacher's and notice there was nothing there that would explode.

    Yes!!! Especially when the kid's science teacher confirmed what it was!!!

    Sometimes with you wingnuts it is hard to tell. You know how sometimes you think an Onion article about Sarah Palin might be true.

    Since this has never happened in the history of ever, I assumed that was sarcasm.

    You condemned them for handcuffs, not thinking it was a bomb.

    No it wasn't sarcasm.

    I can't condemn them for that, though. They aren't electronic experts. Every school in the country goes on lockdown for any threat. They have to. What happens the one time a threat is actually a credible one and it's ignored?

    You don't have to be an expert to notice there was nothing there that would explode. Not to mention they did have an electronics expert, the kid's teacher, tell them it was a clock that he was making for class.

    I agree with you. Unfortunately it's all part of the zero tolerance policy now demanded by the public. Zero Tolerance gone mad???

    Like I said... That this incident turned out like it did is not surprising at all.

    This is probably the best worst day in this kids life...internet famous...invitations from Google, Facebook and the President....kids gonna get a free ride from here on out.

    I don't want english teachers (that's who first reported about the clock) trying to determine if something can or can't explode. And knowing the science teachers I had... I'm not sure they are capable either.

    There's nothing wrong with bringing in the proper authorities like the cops. where this shitshow went off the rails is the cops arresting the kid, and then the school compounding the issue by suspending him 3 days. For essentially being f-ing smarter than them.

    As a scientist, it's heartbreaking thinking of this kid, who was incredibly proud of his creation, being lead away in handcuffs because dopes assumed the worst about some kid based partially on their own ignorance of science, ignorance of race, and ignorance of the kid's religion. People rail about how this country has turned to **** (their dopes), but one way to not do it is to start handcuffing kids who are enthusiastic about science and engineering.

    English majors can get f-ed.

    But the science teacher was working with him on it, so he was well aware of the project. Plus I think even a HS Science teacher could tell you there was nothing there that would explode. They assumed the worst because he was Muslim. If Billy Joe Bob were capable of such a project his intentions would never have been questioned.

    If you look into the cesspool that is Irving, TX, this seems likely.

    And Obama invites him to the White House, fueling the speculation Obama himself is a closet Muslim. No, I'm not saying he is, only that he pours gas on the fire.

    Only a complete **** would suggest that it's a mistake inviting a child to the white house based on their enthusiasm for science.

    Could you image your idiocy if Obama did this:

    Aha, Bush was a secret Muslim too! That explains a lot. Probably took shelter in Islam when I failed to vote for him!
